Fair Hebe


FAIR Hebe, when dame Flora meets,

She trips and leaps as gallants do;

Up to the hills and down again

To the vallies runs she to and fro.

But out, alas! when frosty locks

Begirds the head with cark and care;

Peace! laugh no more, let pranks go by,

Slow-crawling age forbids such ware.
